‘Sphaenognathus Giganteus’ that’s a mouthful! Both delicate and strong and full of character, this painting will bring a smile to anyone’s face and a little humour and magic to those small and ‘in between’ spaces in your home. Painted on vintage exercise book which seemed to contain both Greek and French writing - belonging to a French student of Greek perhaps? Would this be wonderful for a partner who hailed from one of these countries - I can dream. This paper gives the drawing a feeling of a long forgotten botanical study, and take a closer look and you’ll see the fun in the details. Love Bugs? Then surely this is for you.
